Yes, Mr. Poole?

Save your breath

to cool your porridge.

Yes, Mr. Poole.

What are you doing?

Mr. Poole doesn't allow me

in the theatre.

Does he not?

Mirror's in place.

Thank you.

Mary tells us you've been holding

a discussion about the garden.

Remind me what conclusion

we arrived at, Mary.

Flower beds there and at the corners.

And a herb garden here

by the kitchen.

The very thing.

Just what we need.

And would you gather the staff

in the dining room at about 6:00?

I have an announcement to make.

As I'm sure you're all aware...

...the pressure of my work

has increased of late.

Consequently, I have decided

to take on an assistant.

His name is Mr. Edward Hyde, and I

intend to give him the run of the house.

Of course, as a rule, he will come and

go by the side door of my laboratory.

But when he does have the occasion

to step over here...

...treat him with the same respect

that you've always shown toward me.

You may rely on it.

Will the gentleman be

taking his meals here?

Not as a rule, no.

There really is no cause for concern.

He is a quite remarkable young man.

He's a solitary one,

isn't he, the doctor?

He used to have dinner parties regular.

- Then he just stopped.

- Shame.

Oh, no. Best thing ever happened.

Think of the washing up.

And he's never had any sort of...

...a lady friend?

Never a woman stepped in the front door.

Not since I been here.

- Strange.

- Bradshaw says he goes to houses.


Bradshaw says he goes to houses.

What do you mean?

You know...



No, I can't believe that.

You best get off, if you're going.

I'll finish up here.



It was very good of you

to back me up about the garden.

Yes, I think I did rather well.
